English Language Day in
Days to go:
English Language Day is an observance dedicated to the promotion of linguistic and cultural diversity, as well as multilingualism. Celebrated globally, this event acknowledges the historical and contemporary significance of the English Language. A key objective is to foster a renewed appreciation amongst native speakers, as well as encouraging learners to further their understanding. The day also acknowledges the rich literary tradition of the language and its role as a medium of instruction and communication.
The United Nations (UN) established English Language Day in 2010 as one of six language days to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity. These days are focused on the UN’s six official languages, one of which is English. With Canada being fundamentally bilingual, English Language Day is particularly relevant. It offers an opportunity to celebrate the role of English in the nation’s linguistic diversity, and remind citizens of the English language's profound contribution to the country’s multicultural society.
In Canada, English Language Day is observed in several ways. Educational institutions may hold special lectures or workshops focusing on the English language's history, evolution, and its importance in global communication. Libraries and bookstores may host events highlighting English literature. Additionally, radio and television programs may feature special segments dedicated to the day. The day is observed on April 23rd, chosen by the UN to coincide with the date traditionally observed as the birthday of William Shakespeare, the Bard of Avon, who is arguably one of the greatest contributors to English literature.
